Our lesson on Electricity

We’ve been doing science this term and today we learnt how to make an electrical circuit.

First of all we had to draw diagrams using scientific symbols as these are easier to draw.  We had to make predictions and we predicted that the electricity from the battery will flow to the bulb unless the circuit has a gap.

Then we actually had to make the circuit and we used a wire, battery and a bulb to see if it would light up and whether it would work or not.  It did!  Some of us had buzzers instead of bulbs.

Afterwards we had to write a conclusion to the experiment.

This is the first time we have made a circuit and we really enjoyed it.  We will be making a leaflet on electricity for science week which might go on display in the entrance hall.
